I lived thru 2 lives with Shiloh and Travis-one with likely a terrible ending and one with wonderful possibilities since Shiloh connects with Travis at a younger age and maybe can change the course of Travis's life..they were meant to be either later in life or when they were younger..A great story with a hopefully happy life for them

I do not even know where to start. I bought few stories from Dreamspinner's Advent Calendar this year and this one was one of them. I am not impressed. To me flawed character as Maccabe needed to have some kind of the character development. Hopefully his character arc would have showed his development for the better, but either way would have been fine by me, really.

Instead we have him behaving as ego centric spoiled jerk over and over again and then he has, what? A revelation?

Only this revelation does not make him any kind of better person. He starts to act as even more like egoistic, spoiled jerk IMO only now he decides that he has some kind of right to behave as he did.

Big timeline jump does not help at all.

I get that this story is short, but to me the characters needed a novel, because they had a HUGE road to go in front of them and short story did not do them justice at all.

It left me frustrated and unhappy.

IN ANOTHER LIFE
Everything about this book appealed to me. I loved the story line; even the jump from future to past. The characters were intriguing and well done. I mostly loved the change in Shiloh upon waking. He's seen what the future holds in story and grabs it with both hands. No letting go. His self confidence is enough to carry both he and Travis towards that bright future. I only wish the story were longer because I didn't want it to come to an end.

EIGHT DAYS
This is a lovely short story. Perfect for Hanukkah. I loved the self narration from Maccabe. He doesn't mince words over his own stupidity. Josh is one of those characters that doesn't come on strong and yet leaves an impression. This is a friends to lovers book with a lovely ending.

From the incredible prologue to the very last page, I was completely and totally captivated by In Another Life. Great characterization and stellar writing are hallmarks of a Cardeno C. story, but it is the very unique concept that makes this novella such an amazing experience.

In Another Life opens with 18 year old Shiloh Raben’s suicide attempt and quickly flashes forward to the life he might have had. In this life, Shiloh meets Travis Kahn and they quickly fall in love and just as they are beginning their happily ever after, an unexpected event threatens their happiness. Then the story goes back in time to the aftermath of Shiloh’s suicide attempt where he “re-meets” Travis in the present and their romance begins again.

Shiloh and Travis are exceptionally well-developed characters and I absolutely adored both of them. In the future relationship, Shiloh is endearing, a bit shy and when he is nervous, he tends to run off at the mouth. Travis is charming, confident and since he has been waiting a long time for the right man, their romance goes from zero to sixty in no time flat. There is a bit of an insta-love quality to their relationship in both the present and future, but in both instances, their feelings for each other are believable.

Once the story returns to the present, Shiloh and Travis have an instant connection and their relationship develops quickly. Shiloh retains some of his memories of Travis, but they are a bit hazy with a dreamlike quality. Shiloh’s suicide attempt is not glossed over and the reactions of his parents and the treatment he receives are realistic.

In Another Life is a beautifully written novella that delivers a powerful message of hope and love. It is never gloomy or depressing and Cardeno C. deftly blends reality with a hint of fantasy and the resulting story is compelling, thought-provoking and heartwarming.

I received a complimentary copy for review.

I would say I split my reading into thirds: history, supernatural and romance. What a combination, huh? One thing I notice about romance novels is that there are almost never any Jewish MCs. And when we're in supernatural books, we're always werewolves - which isn't bad, since I love werewolves. But...to find a book where not only are the MCs Jewish, but EVERYONE is Jewish - pure bliss. Not only that, there are Hebrew and Yiddish phrases sprinkled throughout - and I understood them all!! So apparently I did manage to get something out of my Jewish education when I was a kid.

Don't misunderstand me - I think this is a book that anyone, Jewish or not, will enjoy. But it just made me cvel.:)

You have two very interesting MCs here. Macabee is the narrator, and he isn't always sympathetic. First and foremost, he is completely clueless. For years. He can also be mean, occasionally petty, cocky and arrogant. You know...a guy. And Josh isn't perfect either. There are certain pressures that Macabee is under that Josh doesn't seem to understand either. These people are flawed. They aren't broken, but they aren't your typical romance MCs either.

I'm straight, so I don't know how traumatic coming out can be (friends who told me years ago got the response "And?" "So?", so I was someone who made their lives a little easier), but I do know that coming out to family can be terrifying. If neither person is out, and one wants to come out and the other isn't exactly sure he's even gay (the clueless factor again - since he only sleeps with one guy and many women, he can't be gay, right? - and I've known some people who think like that too), there's going to be trouble. Or "tsuris" as us Jews say. It's a really intense story, and I just wish it was twice as long as it was.
